Dr. Ravi listens to you. He's a very caring doctor and he sees you as a person and not as a number. I have had two procedures with him and I highly recommend him.
in Tripoli, Iowa |
Dr. Ravi is an excellent doctor and I have no problem with him at all. He does have staff in the office who set up the appointments and gives the orders out that do not listen when a customer tells them of health problems and why they need to have certain prep. I have a kidney disease and as per my neurologist have certain preps I cannot take. The staff was told this but prescribed the wrong item. After several phone calls to the office and the pharmacy it was straightened out before colonoscopy
New Hampton Iowa |
Dr. Ravi was very thorough in explaining everything and took considerable amount of time making sure I understood everything and was emphatic about the necessity of my having a colonoscopy. I look forward to A continuing relationship with him and feel you're a positive about him as a doctor.
in Independence, IA |
The most caring and understanding Dr. I've ever had. Very easy to talk to.
